TOTTENHAM have handed an indefinite ban to a supporter that threw a banana peel at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the North London derby.
The supporter launched the banana skin at the 29-year-old at the Emirates yesterday after the striker broke the deadlock in the tenth minute from the penalty spot.
